In evidence submitted to the Commons Science and Technology Committee, we outline how geographers use census data, and its importance to social science research and government decision-making.
Response submitted 2011
The Society submitted evidence to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee's inquiry examining the census and social science.
The Government in 2011 proposed to end and replace the decennial Census with an alternative data collection method. The Inquiry sought to assess the impact of ending the Census on social science research.
Our evidence submission outlines how geographers use census data, and emphasises that ending the Census would undermine social science research and government decision-making.
